So I finally did a respec.
I like having all my talking abilities and haven't run into too many combat difficulties. I stuck with my old build until I hit 11.
Just did this today, will play and see if I made a mess of it
I have the Sanguine Plate and just put The Blade of the Endless Paths together, going to use that and I enchanted burning lash on it.
